Recording a subject talking in a crowded environment can be tricky. But the Phone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro now have a new feature that can help you “focus” your device’s microphones for clearer audio. A similar feature first popped up on Samsung devices but is now in Apple’s latest handsets.
The feature is, appropriately, called Audio Zoom. And it works about the way you expect. If you zoom in on a subject, the iPhone will “focus” the microphones on that subject while “blurring” out noise from other directions. It apparently works on everything from people talking to machines making noise.
